password= straight to the point.
Go straight to the point = aller droit au but.
The video explains how to do the different accents of the 5 borroughs.
The Bronx accent is very punchy/tough /tʌf/ . You drop your final "r" and you
have a heavy initial emphasis on the consonants: you punch them.
In Brooklyn they masticate/chew the vowels. It's an up and down accent.
It's very lively because it's a nice place to live and a friendly community.
In Queens it's very nasal because it's a pain to live there. It's very boring.
In Staten Island the accent is obnoxious.
Eventually/finally, in Manhattan it's very rushy, fast, they speak quickly
because they are stressed out and busy.
It's a very subjective video! The author aims at joking. It's a caricature.
The woman may live in Brooklyn.
Tough = dur emphasis= accent/emphase emphasize=appuyer/accentuer.
To punch = donner un coup de poing chew/masticate= mâcher
lively= vivant boring= ennuyeux bored= ennuyé boredom= l'ennui
obnoxious= odieux rushy= pressé stressed out= stressé
busy /bizi/= occupé to aim at + V-ing = avoir pour but de aim (v)= viser
an aim = an objective.
